The two Sinclair channels from the market we watch are still on the air. At this time of year, with all the reruns, we don't watch much network programming other than national news and, if the CBS channel goes dark, we'll have two other channels from which to select.

Dish has been down this road before, usually gets resolved right at the brink or within few days of going dark. Looks like a lot of them are Fox so who cares - oh wait, other than for football!

"Dish and Sinclair had been facing a midnight Eastern deadline on Saturday for the expiration of the previous contract. In a statement issued at 3:30 a.m. ET, Dish said the sides had agreed to a short-term extension in order to avoid the shutdown."


"Dish on Saturday filed a complaint with the FCC accusing Sinclair of violating the good-faith covenants of the FCC’s retransmission consent rules. In the statement, Dish said it had asked the FCC to pause action on that complaint while talks continued."
